We need some volunteers as we prepare to re-open our Sanctuary for worship on August 16. Each Sunday we will need 5 persons to do tasks that are required of us until this pandemic passes.

Here are the needs:

    • One person to take attendance each Sunday
    • One person to take the temperature of each person entering. We will use a touchless thermometer.
    • Two people to serve on a Clean Team to make sure high touch areas are disinfected prior to worship
    • One person to serve as “Monitors” to help people to find the designated seats in the Sanctuary and to direct people to overflow seating in the Fellowship Hall if all places are taken in the Sanctuary.

These are simple tasks, but required tasks if we are going to have in-person worship in our Sanctuary. Twenty-four volunteers would be enough so that no one would ever need to serve more than once per month, so would you consider helping out? If you can help, call the church office (453-8333) or email the church (pffirstumc@gmail.com) and we will get you on the schedule.

Thank you for your help in doing these tasks.

We are trying to make improvements in our use of technology, so your patience is appreciated.  This is our schedule until August 16-when we will (tentatively) have a limited re-opening.  Please click "Info Center" at the top of this page and read the information on our re-opening plans.


Good News. After being "closed" since March 8, our sanctuary (tentatively) will once again be open for worship on August 16.  Temporarily, we will have ONE worship service in our Sanctuary at 11:00AM.  Drive-in Worship will continue in our parking lot each Sunday at 9:30AM for those who are not quite ready to gather inside for worship.  We will also continue to stream our worship on Facebook Live each Sunday morning and also have the recording available on our Website. Just follow the link on this page uner "Sermons" in the upper right hand corner.  PLEASE READ THE INFORMATION ON THIS WEBSITE REGARDING REOPENING. It is informaiton you need to know before joining us in worship.  As much as we welcome everyone, it is important that you not just "show up". Click the "Info Center" tab at the top of this page and then click "Reopening Information". 

Also, remember that church expenses go on even in the absence of worship. Please continue with your tithes and offerings.  If you'd like to explore online giving, check out the information below.


You can contribute to our church’s ministry online- without ever having to leave your home. The following link, https://holston-reg.brtapp.com/ChurchOffering, has been set up for you to be able to donate directly to our church. Once you click on the link, you will fill out your name, address, phone, and email. Then, you will select your district (Smoky Mountain) from a drop down menu, and then select our church (First UMC- Pigeon Forge). Finally, you select the amount you would like to give and hit the blue button. This will take you to a screen where you can enter your debit/credit card information. The whole process takes about 1 minute. This option will go away when we resume meeting again, but for now, it is another option for you.
